Guilds of Ravnica is the 79th Magic: The Gathering expansion.


It is part of a series of three sets that are featured on the same plane of d, unofficially called the Guilds of Ravnica block.

It was released on October 5, 2018 (Magic Online: ?) and contains 259 cards.

  • This consists of 111 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, and 15 mythic rares.
  • There are only 254 functionally different cards since all gates have 2 common slots.
  • Each of the 5 basic lands of this set are not included within the 259 cards, meaning that they won't appear in booster packs but only in the planeswalker decks and the Bundle.

The set features five of the dual-colored Ravnican guilds:

Gw Selesnya Conclave
Rw Boros Legion
Bg Golgari Swarm
Ur Izzet League
Ub House Dimir

The official expansion code is GRN. The set symbol is a cityscape Guilds of Ravnica Common.


Each of the featured guilds has a specific mechanic

Whenever this creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on target attacking creature with less power.
Look at the top # cards of your library, then put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.
You may cast this card from your graveyard by discarding a card in addition to paying its other costs. Then exile this card.
Perform a certain action with value X ..., where X is the number of creatures in your graveyard.
Your creatures can help cast this spell. Each creature you tap while casting this spell pays for Mana 1 or one mana of that creature's color.

Planeswalker Decks

Guilds of Ravnica's planeswalker decks include 3 additional exclusive cards each.


It is autumn on Ravnica. The story occurs mostly in darkness with shadows and moodiness, similar to a Film noir. The story gears up for the final showdown with Nicol Bolas. He is trying to slowly influence Ravnica and warp it to his needs. The guilds fight internally between the forces pulling them toward or away from Bolas's influence.
